Alfred Reed Bishop and Doris William Butler
The picture above is the very tap root of Bishop's Homegrown/Face Of The Earth Seed. My grandparents shortly after moving to Pekin Indiana from Greensburg KY in 1947 where they purchased the farm that is now Bishop's Homegrown. This picture was taken in Pekin in front of the old co-op next to the old railroad depot, neither of which exist today.

Carol Deppe: The Resilient Gardener (review coming soon)
Carol was awesome enough to have her publisher send me an advanced review copy of her wonderful new book. Skimming through it in the few minuites of free time I had today between shelling and cracking corn as well as cutting and splitting wood I saw a wonderful wealth of information catered to the exact audience that my blog seems to attract; self sufficient seed saving foodies with an emphasis on what is coming!
I will be reviewing it in the coming weeks and look forward into delving into it! As well I also plan on interviewing Carol later this fall when the book hits the stands.
